See possibility everywhere

Well this tag was made a long while ago but has just never seen its day ...so I thought...why not...

This was made with lots of inky layers of distress and plenty of Tim Holtz goodness, I may dabble with lots of other things but somehow my heart always leads me home to my inks...they just make me happy .

This layered tag has been made with a large tag and a small one layered on top, some texture paste and resist stamping for the base layer...

And for the details, some die cut gears (Tim Holtz thinlits) made a little rusty...along with plenty of yummy idea-ology...

some dyed seam binding tied at the top ...and a hint of rusty wire....and a splash of idea-ology ...well maybe a few splashes!

so it still feels a bit weird being back in blogland and it my be sporadic at times  but it is a start ...

and I would like to enter it into the following ..

so that is all for today ..

  11. I really love this tag, Trace - even though it's taken me weeks to catch up with it! A fabulous warm glow to it amidst the grungy industrial embellishing. Love that resist background. Great to see you posting when you can - I'll be catching up when I can!
